11:05pm

11:09pm
tonight, taking you into the kitchen. not a chefshgs not a cook but
11:10pm
yelp. they are rolling out a brand new service tomorrow, helping servers decide where to eat. they'll show the restaurant's city health inspection scores. i understand this is actually a joint effort between yelp and the mayor's office. >> reporter: jessica, that's right. san francisco mayor saying this new yelp service is a major movement. the health inspection scores are public but you have to look them up at the website and even the mayor admits that's made this information difficult to find, that is, up until now. through technology, more transparen transparency. this number featured on san francisco restaurant yelp profile is the health inspection directly from the health department. click on it and it takes to a second page with the date and the number and detail of violations. they say it is to help consumers

somewhat dirty. >> i won't seek it out because i care more about the experience than the food quality, but i do think there will be some number shock. numbers always shock people. >> reporter: mayor lee is in washington, d.c. preparing to share this news and details at mayors across the country at a conference tomorrow. that's the idea, that this yelp service will move across the country, next up new york, then philadelphia, but san francisco the first. >> stephanie, thank you. without warning, leaders at washington hospital in fremont are cutting hundreds of jobs. administrators told the oakland tribune they have no choice but to eliminate 200 full-time positions. but can the hospital legally do this? washington hospital gets property tax funds through voter-approved bonds, so it must follow the same public meeting laws as the city council. instead, leaders reportedly discussed the cuts behind closed doors without any public notice and did not hold a vote.
11:13pm
when asked about the legality of this issue, a lawyer for the hospital told the tribune that public notice was not required. researchers have an answer for pregnant women worried that getting the flu vaccine could put their babies at risk. it won't. it turns out the most dangerous course of action is not getting the flu shot. the study looked at more than 117,000 pregnancies in norway. it found that women who caught the flu while pregnant had almost twice the chance of miscarriage. even if women got the flu after getting vaccinated, they were much less likely to miscarry. the big question, what will you be watching this sunday, the 49ers or the best surfers from around the world? surf's up and mavericks is on. half moon bay and pillar point getting ready for the biggest party in the past few years. jean elle joins us in half moon bay. this is always evolving, for the fans and the surfers. what are the changes this weekend? >> reporter: one of the biggest changes is the beach where all
11:14pm
the spectators are used to going will be closed for safety reason. contest organizers are throwing a festival here where you can watch all the action on big screens and updates to that 49er game will be provided. but the main event is catching the surfers on 30-foot waves. >> not rolling then going up. they're going -- >> reporter: mavericks contest director jeff clark says big, powerful waves are heading toward half moon bay, big enough to hold the contest sunday. >> we're expecting the waves to be anywhere from 30 to 40 feet. >> reporter: for the first time in two years, 24 big wave surfers from around the world are heading to half moon bay. five will be riding special surfboards clark designed to be faster. >> it has quite a different bottom. it's got three different planing surfaces. this one for going straight and when you roll into a turn, can you keep accelerating and use all that power to get down the
11:15pm
next section or outrun that avalanche. >> reporter: with thousands of people expected to crowd the coast to catch the action, some half moon bay residents say they're making plans to avoid the traffic. >> it makes locals angry. it's fun to watch and great. living in a small town like this, it's a lot of tourists coming and traffic and it's hard to get around. >> relaxing at home and letting all the people come in and spend their money. >> reporter: surfing fans will have to spend some money to watch a live broadcast. the beach will be closed to prevent a washout of 2010 when waves knocked spectators off their feet. instead, mavericks invitational is holding a festival with big screens behind the oceania hotel. >> safety first. >> reporter: clark is hoping for a safe event in the water and on shore. the contest kicks off at 8 a.m. sunday. even with competition with the 49er game, organizers are
11:16pm
expecting thousands of people here on the coast. reporting live at pillar point harbor, jean elle, nbc bay area news. >> a great day. >> did i hear correctly, 30, 40-foot waves? >> and better than that, 70 degrees at half moon bay. >> pat myself on the back for this one. >> way to go, jeff. >> the remarkable thing about this storm creating these strong waves, it is 1500 miles away out here in the pacific. that's the storm right there. we're not going to get impacted by the storm in terms of any rainfall, but it is going to stir up that pacific enough that we'll see an exponential increed in the wave heights off the shore. wave heights 3 to 4 feet, that's it. as the northwesterly swell develops, two miles off pillar point harbor, we'll see the waves increase exponentially. as jean mentioned, by saturday and sunday overall for the coastline, swells 25 to 40 feet.
11:17pm
where the reef interacts they could go 30-plus feet as we heard. remember, this could be very dangerous to all swimmers and boaters. so, if you are not an extreme expert, maybe even just alone dealing with this contest, you probably just want to be a spectator at this point. that would be the safest bet. let's get out to the live hd camera network. we have a lot of haze here tonight. if you look directly up, you'll see the stars. it's just off towards the distance as area high pressure sits over us. it's helping to create poor air quality across most of the bay area. temperatures are also very cold at this hour. 34 in concord. 34 in santa rosa. for the first time in several nights, no 20s on the board. that's the large news. high pressure building offshore. that's going to continue to warm us up as we head throughout the next two days. it's not going to get hot. a little on the warm side, but for most of us it's going to be mild, yes, with a lot of sunshine. a lot of us are going to be thawing out throughout the next couple of days.
11:18pm
let's look at who could hit 70 degrees throughout saturday. saratoga from 66 today to 70 on saturday. santa cruz from 61 to 70. even san jose could pop up to an estimated 68 by the first part of your weekend. tomorrow morning it will be chilly, upper 20s and low 30s with areas of patchy frost in the north bay and east bay. 34 in san jose. al slightly warmer in the morning. throughout the afternoon we'll see daytime highs top out in mid-60s. hazy sunshine. 64 in santa rosa. about a 30-degree jump from the after. 63 in san jose. time for the toyota tahoe report. latest conditions at sqauw valley. temperatures in the upper 30s and a lot of snow to go skiing. snow base at 68 inches. at alpine meadows, temperatures in the upper 30s and sunny skies and a snow base of 67 inches with a groomed surface.
11:19pm
no complaints from skiers. perfect weather even into this upcoming weekend to head up to the sierra. we'll look at dry weather and warming temperatures through saturday and sunday. it looks awesome. again, that dangerous surf, it will be great for the surfers, but for anyone else, you just want to be on the shoreline for this one. we're looking at those sunny skies continuing even through martin luther king jr. day on monday. clouds in here by wednesday. maybe some showers by next thursday. surf's up, everybody. it's going to be a fun weekend. >> yes, it is going to be. thanks, jeff. coming up, the bizarre story involving google street, the car view and a donkey?
